The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan firing cases on Tuesday arrested Sohail Singh Brar, a resident of Faridkot. Brar is accused of fabricating evidence in the Behbal Kalan firing case.

'Helped in creating fake bullet marks'

Sohail Singh Brar allegedly helped the police in creating fake bullet marks on a pilot Gypsy of former SSP and prime accused Charanjit Singh Sharma so that the police could use the excuse of self-defence. Two persons were killed in the incident.

Son of a late Akali leader, Brar had allegedly helped the police in creating fake bullets marks on a pilot Gypsy of former SSP and prime accused Charanjit Singh Sharma so that the police could use the excuse of self-defence. In the incident, two persons were killed. The police are mainly relying on the plea that it had opened fire in self-defence.

Using a private .12 bore gun, the bullet marks were made by an SP-rank officer at the house of Brar in Faridkot on October 14, 2015. Even Sohail had made a statement to this effect before a court in Faridkot on February 22, 2019. The SIT did not arrest Brar as, it is alleged, the probe team was under political pressure to give a clean chit to him.

Confirming that Brar had been arrested, Inspector General of Police Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh, chief investigator of the SIT, said the team would produce the accused in a Faridkot court tomorrow.

The SIT has already filed a challan against six persons, including ex-Akali MLA Mantar Singh Brar, IG Paramraj Singh Umranangal, ex-SSP Charanjit Singh Sharma, Paramjit Singh Pannu and others.
